What are you doing this weekend? If you feel like you need to spend more time with your spouse and kids, why not plan a family date night?
Just like it is important for you to plan a date with your partner, planning out special time together as a family is equally important. If you are at a loss for what to plan to do, there are so many things that make a perfect family date night plan!
Check out this list below for some great family date night ideas
8 Family Date Night Ideas You’ll All Absolutely Love
Family Date Night Idea #1: Game night
Family game nights are always so much fun, and it is such a great way to spend an evening together as a family. Play a game that is suitable for everyone in the family and listens to the giggles that follow.
Family Date Night Idea #2: Make dinner as a family
Yeah, you have dinner at home every night, but I would bet that it is just mom or just dad that does the cooking day-to- day, am I right? How about you make it a family effort where everyone takes part in making dinner.
Idea #3: Dinner and a Movie
Dinner and a movie aren’t just for romantic outings. Kids like dinner and a movie out too! If you are on a budget, you can find a second run theater that shows movies that have been out for a while or hit up the matinee hours at a nearby theater.
Family Date Night Idea #4: Have an evening picnic dinner at the park
If it isn’t yet dark, pack a picnic meal and head to the park. It is nice to get some fresh air while the kids can burn off some energy.
Idea #5: Bowling
Bowling is a very fun way to spend an evening together. You will all be busy cheering for one another to get that strike! Again, if you are on a budget, most bowling alleys offer a discount night making this a very reasonably priced date night.
Family Date Night Idea #6: Movie night and living room campout
Make a bed out of pillows and blankets on your living room floor and pick out a family movie to enjoy from your comfy family bed.
Family Date Night Idea #7: Visit an arcade
While an arcade is probably rarely on your to-do list of places to go, it can be a super fun way to spend time with the family. For you, it will bring back memories of your childhood trips to arcades, and for your kids, it will be a blast to be playing games with mom and dad.
Family Date Night Idea #8: Family bike ride or walk
Are you are looking for a family date night idea that keeps you active? A family activity that I love it after dinner takes the whole family outside for a family bike ride or even a family walk around the neighborhood or neighborhood park.
